    What The F*** Is Going On? with Mark Steel – Ep 124

    Mark is joined by Dr Phil Hammond for a special extended interview about Mark's 'cancer journey' – as they would no doubt call it on Britain's Got Talent!  As a comedian, author and retired doctor, no one is better placed than Phil to give some informed and highly entertaining expert opinion on Mark's experiences, advances in medical science, and the current state of the NHS.

     

    The conversation covers everything from King Charles to East Grinstead – and whether arsenic is really used as a cancer treatment. It's a frank, no-holds barred discussion that contains graphic sexual references and other grown up stuff that needs to be talked about more!
